 The clarity of the 8.35's are a level above the Q40 in term of sound resolution. I dont have the Q40 here with me, but back in SF friend of mine had the Q40 and I had the opportunity to compare.
 I hope you're right about improvement of the instrument separation with a high end cable. If I remember correctly Marleybob217 recable his 8.35 with Mogami W2534. We'll probably needs to hear his impression again. I do have a quad cable ready from my K702 (, but I'm not sure if both mini XLR connectors will hold up in my outdoor parties and in my DJ bag. Maybe for home/studio use this will do better, in my...
 Unfortunately I didn't got the chance to bring them back to my studio for the third time, buy I've found this great video review that let you hear what I was referring about the HD-800 lower treble spike, the T1 spikes and the K812 lowmid boost. 
 The Q40 are a bass head dream, the 8.35 are more balanced and a better sound resolution. Please let us know about your experience.

This is the wear and tear of my beloved 8.35 after almost 5 years of a daily use in the studio, DJ gigs at clubs and outdoor Goa parties. The vinyl tube/pipe cable got dry and start to crack and open up. I'll contact GM to try to get the same cable, I love the build and the sound quality of the original cable. lol, as well I'll need a new GMP logos on the side of the hps cups.    
I've found this video review to be spot on!  
 You can bend the headphones headband a bit to fit your head.

 On both pads the isolation is topnotch. Looks like there is a option to cut out and remove the foam from the stock pads and replace it a different foam/net, but better just to get a different pads and keep the stock ones as a sound reference point. Some don't like the oval sound as the stock pads.
